Catholic lay faithful, who are in good standing with the Catholic Church, may assist the priest and deacon in the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass and taking communion to sick and homebound parishioners. Upon completion of the diocesan training program and being mandated by the bishop, the EMHC is scheduled to serve at Mass or to homebound ministry.
St Mark Christophers take Communion to Sky Ridge Medical Center and Littleton Adventist Hospital along with other churches in the area. In addition, Christophers take Communion to members of our church who are homebound. The time required is 2 to 3 hours once or twice a month to do this very important ministry. You must first be a mandated EMHC to begin your Christopher training. It is an amazing experience bringing the Saving and Healing power of Jesus Christ to those who are not able to attend Mass.
